Diesel fuel is commonly considered the safest fuel source available. This is because diesel fuel is less flammable than other fuel sources and does not produce the same hazardous fumes other standby generators can.
Diesel standby generators are also safe to keep on your property and are much more predictable during extreme weather events. This is important for anyone living in a hurricane-prone region, such as Florida, and is generally easy to operate and maintain.
It is important that your standby generator is operating and functional throughout the year and is always ready for unforeseen emergencies. With diesel generators, you can ensure you and your family are always safe and ready.
The Choice During Long-Term Emergencies
The increasing ferocity of recent natural weather systems like hurricanes means you may be without power for weeks and possibly longer. If you or a family member require power for medical reasons or are elderly or very young then power is crucial.
In hot climates like South Florida, an A/C unit that is unpowered for a long period of time could make your home uninhabitable. Diesel standby generators ensure vital appliances like refrigerators and A/C units keep running no matter how long an emergency lasts.
